2.0 out of 5 stars More frustration than fun., 19 July 2009
= Fun:2.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Bob the Builder: Festival of Fun (Wii) (Video Game)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
My 9,7 and 4 year old love the Wii and spend a lot of time playing many great games like Mario Super Galaxy and Lego Batman. Even my 4 year old can manage these games. However they all agreed 'Festival of Fun' is 'rubbish'.
The one good point I can think of is there are lots of Bob the Builder animation clips and the voices and clips are authentic 'Bob the Builder' but this doesn't hide the fact the gameplay is poor and difficult. My children particularly hated the fact the games are 'timed' whch led to much stress and performance anxiety as they tried to work out what to do and then found it impossible within the time limits. The lady reading the instructions while the visual control display is up also sounds like she is reading a particularly serious public announcement which completely ruins any fun flow the Bob the Builder clips build up.
Wii games are meant to be pleasurable but this led to tears and tantrums.
I would strongly advise buying something else and don't purchase this if you think it will match the ability age range of preschool children. You will end up having to play this rather frustrating, boring game by yourself.
